romney won't be here. the last time a vanquished opponent didn't show up was in 1985 for ronald reagan, and walter mondale was a no-show. that was the last time that the 20th state fell on a sunday and they had to do the monday as i rememberrial, versus another day. and back in those days, it was the coldest one on record, 7 degrees. there will be differences between the obama 2009 and 2013. four years ago, the crowd estimate was nearly 2 million people. there is a big parlor game about whether the crowd estimates on the mall are ever accurate. but nearly 2 million. now they are saying between 600- to 800,000. and there are a series of other things. and the money. four years ago, the obama administration, the obama campaign raised $53 million for the inaugural with personal contributions, all capped at $50,000 or less and there was disdain expressed by the administration about taking corporate money, et cetera. all of those conditions have been lifted. they are taking corporate monet and $50,000 cap has been lifted and it's smaller. they don't expect to raise $53 million, making it eas
parallel here for a previous two-term president. check this out. this is ronald reagan's first-term portrait and this is ronald reagan's second-term portrait. put those up, side by side. that is how president reagan went from portrait one to portrait two. start of term one to start of term two. now look at president obama. see similarities there? it's not like every president does this. just reagan and now obama. i think people make too much of the political parallels between obama and reagan, but aesthetically, you kind of can't make too much of this one. in this case in the evolution of the official portrait, i think you can make as much of this parallel that you want to because that's kind of an uncanny thing, isn't it? the newport rat is out. the new term is about to start. we here at msnbc and everybody in the news business is gearing up for inaugural weekend coverage. this will be my second time covering an inauguration. we'll have the whole schedule for you of when everything happens and when it's going to be on tv. that's coming up a little later on in the show tonight.
inaugural, beat the 7 degrees it was for ronald reagan's second. >> that's right. let's talk about where the president is, as he starts his second four years in office even before the gun debate is hammering his approval. 51% approval rating which is really where george w. bush was, it's 19 points less than bill clinton was, but far below where he was. >> alisyn: yeah, you remember four years ago how exciting it was for the country as he was being sworn in and how much hope there was for hope and change and back then, the approval rating according to gallup was 68% and today, you know, after four years and obviously, it's harder to be a president than a hopeful candidate, it's at 48%. >> steve: you know what's interesting, about two or three weeks ago at the conclusion of december, the gallup poll number was, don't tell me, was 58%, so, closer to 60. what's happened in the last couple of weeks? well, you know, he did win that fiscal cliff thing and jacked up taxes on the most successful people in the country a campaign promise and experts say it looks as if his push to reining in gun vio
was canceled because of weather was in 1985, when it was about 7 degrees, snowy, icy. ronald reagan decided to stay inside and not hold the parade. today, the weather looks good. it's crisp. the show will go on, matt. >> far cry from that. willie, we'll check in with you during the morning as well. thank you very much. >>> lester holt is also here on capitol hill somewhere behind me. good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning. we have a great view, the platform where the president will be sworn in, 10,000-square-foot platform will be filled with members of the house and senate, supreme court, members of the cabinet along with the diplomatic core and others. the program gets under way about 11:30. it should last about an hour and a half. james taylor, kelly clarkson and beyonce, who will sing the national anthem at the close of the ceremony. chief justice roberts will administer the sceremonial oath the lincoln bible and the travel bible owned by the reverend dr. martin luther king jr., whose birthday we celebrate today. in that speech worry told the president will talk about the n
inauguration of ronald reagan and when eisenhower in 1957 was taking his second oath. >>gregg: as president obama prepares to kickoff the second concern there is growing concern over the administration's recently outlined plan to rewrite the nation's gun laws. beginning with a campaign style tour to drum up support. doug, is the president's campaign-like approach to all of this a response to the tough partisan realities on capitol hill? >> that is a good statement. for example, republican senator rand paul has vowed to introduce legislation to nullify the president's 23 executive actions he signed last week. he says the founders did not want the president to become a king. senator feinstein's plan to introduce a new assault weapons and extended magazine ban is facing daunting obstacles. >> i don't think senator harry reid brings it to the senate floor because he has six democrats up for election in two years in states where the president received fewer than 42 percent of the votes. >> leader harry reid will make guns one of the earliest things we consider. chairman leahy has talked about he
tradition of going to st. john's right before their inauguration. harry truman, ronald reagan and both president bush's went to st. john's on the actual morning of the inauguration. we watch president barack obama carry on that tradition. bill: remarkable when you are here in washington and you see the white house for the location where we are, lafayette church, st. john's church is on the north end of lafayette park. if you were to walk as a civilian, might be 300 yards total. martha: not today. bill: in this case with the president and first family and amount of security in washington, d.c. as we see the vice president now get inside of his limousine as well, there are no chances taken here. climbing into cadillac 1, coming back to the white house before the procession begins up pennsylvania avenue toward the capitol building. that church is such a beautiful part of our nation's capitol. if you have been here you have seen it and you have seen the history inside of it and how intimate it is as a house of worship. martha: the presidents sit in the pew 54 in st. john's which is reserve
on 20th being on sunday was ronald reagan and it was 7 degrees. there is record low. we are nothing like that today. we won't be tomorrow either. >> heather: it looks beautiful. thank you. be sure and tune in tomorrow for full coverage of the any understanding raise, bret baier and megyn kelly will anchor events systematic at 11:00 a.m. eastern. >> gregg: a fox news alert. breaking details now on that hostage crisis in algeria. security officials say even more bodies have been found now inside the remote desert gas plant, just one day after bloody raid ended the four day standoff. dozens of hostages did manage to escape unharmed but 23 were killed. there are new reports that there was as many 8 americans among the hostages, one has died and seven escaped. there is growing concern over the fate of two other americans who remain missing this hour. coner powell has the latest. >> reporter: algerian officials saying the death toll that does stand at 23 is likely to increase in the next few days as they get more and more information. algerian officials have spent the last 24 hours or so shift
. and this is the 7th time, scott, on a sunday the president has taken the oath of office. the last time ronald reagan in 1985. scott. >> pelley: the robinson family, of course is the family of michelle obama. her grandmother originally owned this bible. this is the blue room. there is the chief justice of the united states. and we expect to see the president very shortly. >> please raise your right hand and repeat after me. i barack obama hussein obama do solemnly swear. >> that i will faithfully execute. >> that i will faithfully execute. >> the office of president of the united states. >> the office of president of the united states. >> and will to the best of my ability. >> and will to the best of my ability. >> preserve, protect and defend. the constitution of the united states. >> the correspondence steution of the united states. >> so help you god. me god. congratulations, mr. president. >> thank you mr. chief justice. thank you so much. ( applause ) thank you, sir. >> i did it. all right. thank you everybody. >> pelley: just as simple as that the president with the first family in the blue ro
clinton's second term, he made significant progress on balanced budgets and ronald reagan accomplished tax reforms. >> even if they're dealing with other problems. >> and we have been fortunate to be scandal-free and we want to continue that, but if you look, it's not like we're roaming around the west wing looking for things to do. right now in front of congress and the country you have the need to reduce the deficit and continue to grow the economy, energy and climate change, immigration, gun safety. things are stacked up. and so i think that that is going to provide the sort of focus and energy you need and i think his intention is to run through the tape all the way through. >> gun safety has jumped to the top of the president's agenda since newtown and this week the president promised that the weight of his office behind these proposals, but we're already seeing a lot of resistance from democrats and i want to show some of the reaction this week. senator max baucus "before passing new laws we need a thoughtful debate that respects responsible law abiding gun owners in montana instead
model for him would be bill clinton's inaugural address, or ronald reagan's second inaugural. both of those were similar kinds of political environments. congress was in the hands of the other party. or one house was, at least. and each of them was very gracious towards the other party. reached out, said things about the goodwill of the other party. >> the difference there is reagan could look back and talk about how the republicans worked with democrats to fix social security, bill clinton could look back and talk about the deficit reduction plan. other things they had done a little bit together. it's harder for president obama to do that because there's been so much polarization. >> polarization has been on both sides. it would be a good step for the president, i actually don't expect him to take it. to try to put that behind, to have at least a rhetorical frame for being more enveloping. obviously in the last few days, last week or so, he hasn't taken that tact. he's, he had his press conference about a week ago. he's had some, they've floated some stories about how they're goin
. this is when ronald reagan started his second term and bill cl clinton here up at 60%. a low point in terms of his three most recent predecessor as a two-term president. but a high point for this president. if you look at this here, this goes back through the carter presidency and george h.w. bush presidency and you see, again, a low mark for any president in modern time. thinks things in the country are going well, but better for him if you look at the obama presidency here. now, here's a question here. what kind of president will the president obama be in his second term? 54%, majority of americans think he is above average or outstanding. that is a good number for the president. but you see, again, just over 40% of americans say he is below average or poor. a partisan divide and this shows you why. the american people, look at that number. 76% of americans think the country is more deeply divided than in the past. unity bringing people together and getting the government to work is a big challenge of the president's second inaugural address. 70% of americans are hopeful that the presiden
americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. >> ronald reagan gave the first inaugural address from the west front of the capitol. in doing so issued a manifesto of the area's conservative tide. >> in this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem. >> but the most recent inaugural address was that given by barack obama. >> this is the price and the promise of citizen ship. this is the source of our confidence, the knowledge that god calls on us to shape and uncertain destiny. this is the meaning of our liberty and our creed, why men and women and children of every race and every faith can join in celebration across this magnificent mall, and why a man whose father who less than 60 years ago might not have been served in a local restaurant can now stand before you to take a most sacred oath. >> wow. at its best, inaugural justice for a presidency, what a lead sentence does for a book. it captures the duration of what's to come. a great presidency often begins with a great statement. in the day that m
still a republican? i grew up under ronald reagan, and george schultz, and george herbert walker bush, and that's the republican party i knew. i think we've drifted from that. there's nothing wrong starting to drift a little bit back. not because it's good to be moderate. but that's where the american people are. they lost an election. two. >> five out of the last six. and the president will try to, you know, tie everyone together today. one speech can't do that. but what does he need to do, in your view? >> in the speech, i think he needs to appeal to our better angels. raise -- don't just tell me about the policy statements. save that for the state of the union. inspire america today. and i hope that's what he will try to do. but he needs to get to work. and the number one problem is the economy. he's got to fix the economy. the fiscal situation has been fixed, to a large extent. the stock market's doubled. that's pretty good. but he has to get everybody working again. it means fix the economy. it means fix the education. so we're bringing kids along that have the skills for 21st ce
president to take the oath on a sunday was ronald reagan in 1985. enough with the real news, let's gather around the water cooler. what do you have for us? >> so good to be here with you. >> it is, right? >> exciting. >> i'm only doing small sips. >> say a big swig, please. just do it. for the viewers. >> a little guinness in the morning. it does the body good. i'm here with phil and kathy bowlen. they are huge "morning joe" fans. they were here four years ago for the inauguration. what keeps you watching? that's loyalty. that's what i love about "morning joe" fans. >> yes. >> just starting the day off with willy and now you is fun. >> this is a family affair. this is your very handsome son patty back here. he is the main bartender here at the dubliner. now i hear this is the president's watering hole. is that true? >> absolutely. >> whether was he here last? >> he was here st. patrick's day. >> what does you drink? >> guinness. >> no irish coffee? >> i'll take a guinness then. >> you got it, lewis. look at that. there is nothing better than the taste of guinness in the morning, guys. now
mean with ronald reagan, he had iran/contra, and that really pulled -- you talk about being able to accomplish things, that really got in the way of him trying to accomplish anything in the last couple of years. and then monica lewinsky thing just absolutely hobbled bill clinton. >> took over. >> he couldn't do anything the last two years. he was totally focused on protecting himself and defending himself. so i'm not saying that obama will get himself into something like that, but you just don't know what's going to happen. you don't know -- and you don't know how you're going to react. >> james? >> the randomness of political reality is important to keep in mind. two other things to focus on. i think this administration has more political capital than it has accessed because this coalition of voters that put him back in office is really a broad constituency. they've got to speak to those folks to the left of them. very important. the folk on the right, intractable folk in the congress, i don't think -- there is no honeymoon for those guys. they're back at it. he has more politic
some brutal inauguration days, snowstorms, terrible weather. >> well, ronald reagan, the second time around, remember they had to move it inside the capitol. >> mrs. michelle obama, accompanied by secretary of the senate, clerk of the house of representatives. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> mrs. obama making her way to the rest of her family, her daughters and her mother. the president will be seated next to them shortly. next, we should be hearing the announcer present the vice president of the united states. norah, as we watch the vice president making his way to the west front of the capitol, let's switch to you for a moment. >> that's right. and you know, the vice president last night was at an inaugural reception, and he was singing the praises of his boss, barack obama, and saying he's just getting started, he's just getting started. and he promised supporters at this reception last night that in the weeks and months ahead, that they would reduce gun violence in america, that they would pass comprehensive immigration reform, and he said, "we're going to put this nation's econom
would inject a dose of ronald reagan optimism don't despair in america. >> follow me at twitter at james rosen and i will tell you which president was the first to have his inaugural address live nationwide. >> i always follow your twitter but i will especially tonight. >> you are always so good to me. >> the political landscape at the part of the term was different than it was when he came to the white house four years ago. republicans control the house. you need look no further than the recent game of political chicken over the fiscal cliff to know just how divided washington is. and more instance show downs are looming. one example the debt creel and controlli -- debt ceiling and what americans describe as out of control spending. republicans take with the attitude toward congress at this point? >> to get real solutions president obama needs to understand what will pass in the republican led house. it will also be acceptable to him. lawmakers tend to be unhappy when the president goes around them. they called on mr. obama to do better. >> he speaks in general terms likes the executive
. >>> welcome back to the west front of the capitol, where we've been inaugurating our presidents since ronald reagan. behind me is where the president will take the public oath surrounded by all the vip seating. the families, the obama family, the biden family, and then not far behind them, members of the u.s. senate. i am joined now by a u.s. senator, a new u.s. senator from the state of maine, an independent, senator angus king. nice to have you here today. >> good morning. great day for america. >> we talked about vip seating. this is your fourth inauguration, and this is the best seating you've ever had. >> the seats are getting better all the time. the first time was with my dad when i was 8 years old, standing down on pennsylvania avenue for eisenhower's inauguration. i was at george w. bush's and then obama's last time. a lot warmer today than 2009. it's just a great day. >> reporter: and you have the best view you've had yet. senator, you're independent. you said you wanted to come to washington to shake things up. is that what washington needs. does it need to calm things down? >> i
, the hottest or the warmest inaugural in our history was the first ronald reagan inaugural, january 20th, 1981. it was 55 degrees. president reagan in a suit. nobody bundled up. that's a spring day the president had in january 1981. four years later he had the coldest inaugural in our history, it was 7 degrees at noon on january 21st, 1985. the sore moaneny, notice the difference, the ceremony was moved indoors. afternoon a windchill of minus 10 degrees to minus 20 degrees. a cold day for president reagan. what do we expect for president obama? we are told to expect temperature somewhere in the ballpark of 44 degrees when the president steps to the west front of the capitol tomorrow. as you note it is a beautiful day today. we expect another beautiful day here tomorrow. nobody's wearing overcoats. our friends on the mall here are out enjoying what we call a beach day in washington, anderson. remember four years ago we were bundled up. this feels kind of nice. >> it's beautiful here. inside -- insider is revealing the moment that changed the relationship between president obama and hillary clin
's what happened with jason woo and that gorgeous white gown. >>> last week tom told us that ronald reagan had the warmest and coldest inauguration day. >> today we're settling in the middle. tom kierein with our inauguration day forecast. >> we'll take that for late january. not going to be too cold but certainly cold now. there's capitol hill. a live view from our city camera. 33 at reagan national. cloudiness streaming over. a wind out of east at 5 to 10 miles per hour. streaks of high cloudiness now passing over. producing a few flurries north and east of washington northern anne arundel county, prince george's. maybe a few scattered flurries in fairfax county and into western maryland. temperatures are down into the 20s. locally, around the beltway, arlington, fairfax, prince george's, montgomery counties near 30 degrees. it's going to hold steady here below freezing to near freezing for another couple of hours. here's the inauguration day forecast on the mall. by 8:00 a.m., still mid 30s or so. upper 30s. by the time of the swearing in ceremony between 11:00 and noon. the low 40s. ma

to the crowd on the west front of the capitol, the west front being used since ronald reagan's first inauguration as the location of the inaugural services -- ceremonies i should say. mr. biden will be sworn in by justice sotomayor. >> and, tyler, what we have to think about when we watch joe biden walk down those steps, is this the cap stone of his career or not? is it going to continue? he ran for president twice on his own, unsuccessfully. barack obama selected him, by all accounts has been very satisfied with his performance. you hear some talk about joe biden running for president. i personally wouldn't expect it, but can't rule it out. jared, you worked for him. >> i personally wouldn't expect it either, but exactly what you said. you never want to rule these things out. i think politicians at that level think about being the president. it's just a natural thing. one thing i will say about vice president biden is, boy, is his stock riding high. he has been integral to so much during that first term. some of it you didn't see early on or you didn't see much of. marshaling the re
basically is declaring the end of reaganism in this speech. remember, he once said that ronald reagan was historically consequential in a way that bill clinton was not. and what obama meant is that obama had changed the ideological course of the country. in 1981 in his inaugural address within two minutes, reagan had declared that government is not the solution, government is the problem. today's inaugural address was a rebuke to that entire idea. this speech today was an ode to big government. it was a hymn to big government. in his refrain, the three "we the people"'s, number one i'm going to defend what liberalism acheered, medicare, social security, medicaid. i'm not going to let any of that be chipped away and secondly, he said the vision for the future, climate change and green energy, the new expansion of liberalism in the new century and then the third element was his expansion of civil rights, where he talked about immigrants and gays and shoe-horned to gun rights under the rubric of security. he outlined the liberal agenda, the big government agenda in the future. and brit t
about second term curses that have brought down richard nixon, hampered ronald reagan, bill clinton. people forget reagan was able to get tax reform, bill clinton was able to get a balanced budget. certainly a big opportunity for the president but fully aware in the white house, a lot of challenges ahead as well, jenna. >> certainly not challenges for a father. nice to see the first family, ed, and how much the girls have grown up over the last four years. what we're looking at for the president tomorrow besides the hair styles and what everybody is wearing at the inauguration is what is he going to say? what will be the address to the nation tomorrow? you mentioned some policy challenges ahead. what are you hearing about tomorrow's address and how that might set the table, if you will, for the years to come? >> true. what i'm hearing is the state of the union address next month is really where the president will go with a deeper dive on policy, whether it be gun control, immigration reform, the debt ceiling debate. tomorrow's broad scene. his senior advisor will talk about bringing
inaugurations. you've served for three different presidents starting with ronald reagan and then 41 and then 43 as well. today, while we watch what's going on on the west face of the capitol, at the white house, whole bunch of people are reenergized because a lot of people get new offices, new assignments. plain how that works -- explain how that works behind the scene. >> it's sort of like new year's day. you're all excited and you make all kinds of promises that you're going to lose weight and exercise and it's very exciting. people get to move into offices. they shuffle around, get new phone numbers, new business cards. take an oath of office to help the president do his could be and protect and defend the constitution of the united states against all enemies, foreign and domestic. so it's exciting. they're bringing their families in. it's an exciting time. it's also a time of cleaning out because there is some people that won't be staying. when they change hands, if you will, inside the white house, there are some people that will say, what comes next? i haven't made any plans. there will b

's mother, live with them in the white house. >> 800,000 is pretty good, more and then came out for ronald reagan, more than george w. bush. >> and it is the second inauguration, still larger than any other inauguration, except for his first. >> even with some of the disappointments, and the unfilled expectations, there is still a resonance, particularly with african-americans, the importance and significance of having barack obama as president. people are still coming out and supporting. we saw that last year in the election. 95% of african-americans voted for him. there is still a lot there attached to the meaning of having a first african-american becoming president of the united states. >> when you say you wish it would have been eight knowledge, the history of the building of this city, the nation's capital, washington, d.c., explain. >> psychologists tell us that acknowledging pain and suffering is a way to get past the trauma. until the country related knowledge as that this is part of the history -- we have had good parts of history but we have also had bad, and we should not prete
'll take it. remember it was ronald reagan in 1985 where festivities were actually canceled because the high was 17 degrees, and lower than that throughout the day. so this is pretty good. >> i got to say, it's kind of perfect. robin meade, don lemon and christi paul are along with us along the parade route. robin, i know you were out in the cold of the morning. a lot of people we saw, it's been a good day for hand warmers and body warmers. everybody going through security had them in their gloves and in their shoes and in their coats. >> they are the item of the day. i'll tell you that much. to give you an example of what people here went through, to get through security to go to the parade, to me it felt a little different than getting through security to get to the national mall. it feels more stringent here on the parade route, because if you look, see how close people are able to be to the parade route, compared to the blocks and the blocks on the mall. so when we went through security, they asked us -- it was very hands-on. they took away our diet soda cans. no cans allowed. t
